Dental Fillings are composed of tooth-colored composite material that replaces the missing tooth structure. Fillings are an easy cost-effective option for restoring decayed, broken, and chipped teeth.
Although, some fillings may last for years, eventually all fillings will require replacement. Fillings are under constant pressure from everyday activities such as eating, clenching, and grinding. Normal wear and tear will cause fillings to chip and crack leaving the tooth exposed. After the seal between the filling and tooth is broken, food and bacteria can get in the filling causing tooth decay. Decay left untreated can result in a need for a root canal or extraction.
Pricing ranges from around $80-$300 per filling depending on size and location. With insurance, a typical copay is around $40-$70 after the deductible. Uninsured patients are eligible for our discount plan.
